State Sen. Ed McBroom says it is time to re-evaluate the need to ban deer bait in the U.P. He plans to hold hearings by the end of this month or early June on how the state is handling chronic wasting disease in its deer population.
It has been three years since a doe tested positive for CWD on McBroom’s farm in Dickinson County. That caused a ban on baiting in most of Dickinson County and parts of Menominee and Delta Counties. At the time, sportsmen group asked for a three year sunset clause on the moratorium. McBroom says it is time to start talking about it again.
